Do I "Smell Fall" ?

When you want it to rain you wash your car right?
Well, I thought that after numerous days of 112 degrees... I would bake something "pumkin~ish" to help usher in a little bit of fall.
The forecast is still HOT but next week is hopeful!
So, come on... Let's get cookin'!
Bake & share some of your favorite fall recipes and see what happens ;)
